Hand Cut Fries with cheese and bacon

We had a great time yesterday watching the Alabama/Arkansas football game.  Along with pulled pork sandwiches and ribs, my daughter requested homemade fries.  I added a few things to make them a little more game day-like.  You could also top with diced tomatoes, chopped jalapenos or green onions.

8 large russet potatoes, washed, peeled and sliced to the thickness you want
Vegetable oil
Sea salt
Shredded mild cheddar and colby cheese
Dried thyme
Crumbled cooked bacon

Heat oil in a large Dutch oven or deep fryer to 370 degrees. Add about a fourth of the potatoes and gently stir to separate them. Fry until golden brown and drain on paper towels. Repeat with remaining potatoes. Begin to layer the fries on a serving platter adding salt, cheese, thyme and bacon to each layer.
